John Kørner is a young artist from Denmark who’s interested in examining how viewers respond to his painting, often showing his work outside the usual setting of a museum or gallery. He works simultaneously with vivid colours and large empty white surfaces, where everything takes place at the margins. The motifs or “problems” in Kørners paintings are rooted in both the real and metaphysical worlds. Natural phenomena are often shown alongside more surreal elements, with both form and content constantly transformed through repetition of motifs. Kørner aims to lead viewers to new and absurd connections that are often both playful and poetic.
